ShanayAnderson's Profile Picture

Artist | Film & Animation
United States
I am a Digital Media graduate in the field of animation, with a love for character-based work (storyboards, designs, animation, you name it). I have experience with both 2D and 3D animation, as well as more illustrative work.

I spend my time trying to learn more about various aspects of art and animation, reading books about history and science fiction, and making people cringe with horrible, horrible puns. :)
There is just nothing quite like having the music of Symphony of the Night blaring out of your headphones to get you motivated to update your old and dusty deviantart journal.  (I could listen to Dracula's Castle on repeat for hours...)  Do any of you care about what I'm listening to?  Probably not, but I'm really enjoying this soundtrack, so that means you get to hear about it!

Anyway, I have recently FINALLY decided which website service to switch my portfolio to.  While someday I would like to build one from the ground up to suit my whims, for the time being I just wanted something simple, clean, and functional that I don't have to fiddle with too much to make it look nice.  So I've made myself a site on Squarespace, and I would absolutely LOVE if some of my fellow artists would give me feedback on it (content, organization, that sort of thing).  I'm still figuring out the interface, so basic looks are still being tweaked (and I'm not entirely sure how to go about stopping the images from stretching out on full screen view) but any thoughts you might have would be fantastic.…

At some point I want to add an art resource page, too.  I want to make a list of all of the things I've found useful over the years for other artists to use.  I haven't quite gotten that far, but that's one of the things I'm planning on adding.  I also need to boost the number of images per category, since I really couldn't find much I considered up to snuff in my art folders.  I suppose I'd better get to work on that! :D

Hello! :D  Thanks for stopping by and saying, "Hey".  Hope to see you around on OA.

Also, if you ever want a critique on any of your art (as per your journal), feel free to let me know!  I'd be more than happy to give you feedback on your work.

You definitely will! I'm halfway through the first assignment and it's tough but I'm already learning!

That would be awesome! Not many people drop by to say much as I'm new on DA so that would seriously make my day! I appreciate it

Oh that first assignment... Much harder than it sounds!  I've restarted it four times so far, and I'm going to restart it again.  I just can get a handle on using the gradients.  Still, I get a little closer each time. :)

And of course, no problem. :D
